College Football - Week Thirteen Peview
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 14:37
Back to winning ways for the blog last week with yet another 2-1 week and it’s now 9-5 over the past five weeks. Alabama never looked like losing at home to no.1 ranked Mississippi State and they came with 15 seconds of covering the spread. Florida State produced yet another comeback win whilst Georgia completed my winning week by stomping all over Auburn. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma won on the road at Texas Tech to sneak back into the rankings at no. 20 but at 7-3 their hopes of reaching the playoffs are over. The same can’t be said of Oregon who had a week off last week and remained at no.2 in the rankings. Win their final two games and the Pac-12 Championship and they’ll..
NHL Trends - Back to Back games
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 09:20
We’re now almost two months into the NHL season and it’s time to take a first look at one of the trends I want to explore during the season which is the impact of back to back games on teams. Back to back games are common in the NHL and all teams will play their fair share of them and it’s how the 2nd game turns out that I want to focus on. Eastern Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Montreal Canadiens 4 0 0 Tampa Bay Lightning 2 3 0 Boston Bruins 0 3 0 Detroit Red Wings 1 0 1 Ottawa Senators 0 2 0 Toronto Maple Leafs 2 1 1 Florida Panthers 0 0 1 Buffalo Sabres 2 3 0 Pittsburgh Penguins 1 0 1 New York Islanders 2 1 0 Washington Capitals 1 3 0 NY Rangers 0 2 0 Philadelphia Flyers 1 3 0 Columbus Blue Jackets 1 4 0 Western Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Nashville Predators 0 0 1 St. Louis Blues 1 1 0 Winnipeg Jets 1 1 1 Chicago Blackhawks 1 1 0 Minnesota Wild 2 0 0 Colorado Avalanche 0 1 1 Dallas Stars 0 3 0 Anaheim Ducks 2 1 0 Calgary Flames 2 0 0 Vancouver Canucks 1 3 1 Los Angeles Kings 1 2 0 San Jose Sharks 2 2 0 Arizona Coyotes 2 1 0 Edmonton Oilers 1 1 0 There are many factors that go into playing on back to back nights. Many NHL teams will rotate their goaltenders and depending on the matchup may play their backup..
Ludogorets - Liverpool Preview - The Bulgarian Perspective 2
by botev1921 on 23 Nov at 22:32
Unlike many OLBG members, in a couple of days I will be cheering for Ludogorets to beat Liverpool and remain with a shot at making it further in the Champions league, but betting on this match is a totally different cup of tea. I must confess that from the start I was pretty much convinced this will be one of the two potential Ludogorets home wins in Europe and little changed since as they did beat Basel and were a late penalty away from getting that vital point in England. This time around, as I am preparing this preview, I see absolutely no reason to trust Liverpool in Sofia and you must all start from there in my humble opinion. Still, the situation is worth looking at closely, because while Liverpool are well known around Europe, I doubt many people..
20/1 shot for the Hennessy Gold Cup
by Micko70 on 24 Nov at 23:08
The Hennessy Gold Cup is a top class handicap chase that is run at Newbury in either late November or early December. The race is run over 3 miles 2 and a half furlongs and 21 fences will be jumped during the race. Could we see this years Cheltenham Gold Cup winner running in this race, both Bob's Worth & Denman have won this race before winning the Gold Cup, in total 8 horses have won this race before going to glory in the Gold Cup in their careers. I am using 10 trends for this race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Chase Wins, Graded Wins & Distance Any horse passing a trend with 10 gets 5 points, a 9 gets 4 points, an 8 gets 3 points, a 7 gets 2 points..
Gameweek 12 - Crystal Palace vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 20 Nov at 07:04
On Wednesday the Liverpool faithful woke up to the glooming news that Daniel Sturridge has suffered a second injury setback which will extend his 2-month absence. This will definitely be a blow for the Reds, who ahead of their 12 matches over a 5-week period, were hoping that the return of the England international could turn their fortunes around. Liverpool travel to Selhurst Park on the back of 3 straight defeats and with over a month since their last Premier League win. The 3 points are of the essence for Reds as they look to keep in touch with that 4th Champions League spot currently held by West Ham. Crystal Palace themselves are in no better situation. The London club’s last Premier League win dates back to September and they have generated 1 point in their last 5 matches. This..

Weekly Euro Football Predictor 2014 - WEEK 10
by botev1921 on 20 Nov at 22:29
After the great season we had last year and the tons of positive messages regarding our Weekly Euro Football Blog, we are back with a bigger team and even more determined to help you out with well-developed selections on the biggest European leagues and the Champions league. The idea behind the blog is to get differing opinions on the best bets for the best matches in Europe over the weekend from a panel of experts.

You may wish to take one bet where the panel agrees (signalled out as CONSENSUS PICK) and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European..
